For the last two years on the first of January, I have released a collage of forward facing beats to get the new year off to a good start. All tracks were created as part of a regular Beat Cypher challenge where a collective of music producers from different countries are given two samples, a BPM and a couple of days to turn a beat out and upload it to a mystery location. Available artist direct at my Bandcamp Store.
Created for friends by their friend (me) because I like them and their music.
Collaborations with other music artists that I have produced / performed with.
Yumi Umiumare – Sound Design
I have been creating sound for the inimitable Butoh punkess Yumi Umiumare since 2011. Below is a video excerpt from our “Pop Up Tearoom Series” which was part of FOLA 2016. Our previous work Dasshoku Shake won a Green Room Award for Innovation in Cabaret and was part of the 2012 Melbourne Fringe. Dasshoku Shake was a collaboration between Yumi and Theatre Gumbo from Osaka. More on the magnificent Yumi Umiumare at yumi.com.au.
Eugenia Lim – Sound for Video/Installation
Since 2006, I have collaborated with Eugenia Lim who works across video, photo-media, installation and cross-disciplinary practice. Interested in how nationalism and stereotypes are formed, Eugenia invents personas to explore the tensions of an individual within society – the alienation and belonging in a globalised world.
Our most recent collaboration ‘The Australian Ugliness‘ which I composed a six channel surround score for is currently showing at the Museum of Contemporary Art as part of The National.
